The Front Line for Critical Limb Ischemia

Written by
Michael Cumming, MD, MBA

CLI is an advanced vascular disease that severely restricts blood flow to the extremities. As many as half of those diagnosed with CLI undergo an amputation within one year of diagnosis, according to a 2015 article published in Cardiology Clinics. Endovascular repair improves outcomes for these patients, saving limbs and quality of life.

Located in St. Louis Park, Minnesota, CDI Vascular Care offers CLI patients the full spectrum of care, from physiologic testing and anatomical imaging to wound debridement and outpatient below-the-knee revascularization procedures to restore blood flow and salvage limbs in critical condition. This comprehensive approach to CLI allows patients to come to one healthcare team who can manage their care.
